The World

President Reagan, in a message read to a nuclear non-proliferation conference that opened in Geneva, said he wants to build a more cooperative relationship with the Soviet Union and to "rid the world of the nuclear threat." He made the statement to delegates attending a review session on the 1970 non-proliferation treaty intended to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons. Sweden and Australia urged both the United States and the Soviet Union to halt atomic tests and warned of a possible era of "nuclear terrorism."
